The new concept is intended to drive cross shopping among other categories.

J.C. Penney says it will begin implementing a “center core layout” in more than one-third of its stores this spring that will turn its areas of fashion jewelry, accessories, footwear and handbags “into a vibrant shopping environment that complements Sephora inside J.C. Penney and the Fine Jewelry Store,” Chain Store Age magazine reports. The article says that this new layout was piloted in stores last year to “promote greater cross shopping” in the aforementioned areas. The test drive was a success, so the retailer is rolling out the concept on a larger scale. “As we continue to expand our center core concept to more stores, customers will discover compelling displays that bring accessories to life in a meaningful and dynamic way,” Jodie Johnson, J.C. Penney’s senior VP of footwear and handbags, told the magazine.

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
